Fairbury Nebraska First Friday Art WalkArt Walk Celebrates Art, Music of John Denver

March 2014 - Fairbury’s First Friday Art Walk is scheduled for Friday, April 4th in downtown Fairbury. Many cities hold “art walks” one evening a month where galleries open their doors and feature works of local artists. Visitors will enjoy visual arts, culinary arts and music, and have a chance to meet the artists themselves. The art walk, which is free and open to the public, begins at 5 p.m. at the Jefferson County Art Guild, located downtown at 511 5th Street, across from the Campbell Bros Circus Mural.

According to event coordinator, Julie Katz, “There will be four stops on the April art walk featuring the works of several local and regional artists. Punch cards can be picked up at the first stop, the Jefferson County Art Guild. Completed cards can then be dropped off at the last stop, Stagecoach Mall, which will be entered into a drawing for prizes.”

David Hunt, Jefferson County Art Guild, Fairbury NebraskaStop #1: The Jefferson County Art Guild, located at 511 5th Street will be featuring the works of artists and members of the Beatrice Art Guild.

The April First Friday will feature  handmade pottery by ceramic artist Heather Hiesterman of Linn, Kansas.
